About

Subtle Taxi Ribbon:

This mod will change your Taxi Ribbon to make it into smaller orbs that is animated to show the direction of your taxiing. This mod is based on Cygnific's Animated Taxi Ribbon mod which I have modified to be recolored green to blend well with the taxiway centrelights. This mod will make the taxi ribbon less obtrusive and more immersive when using it.

Known Issues:

At the moment, using just the new version might make the blue/green parking box at the end to appear again. The  current workaround is to still install the old version with any size that you want to the official folder. Then also install the new version to the community folder. That way, the old version will still make the parking box invisible, while the taxi ribbon itself will be overridden by the new version in the community folder. This is a temporary workaround until Cygnific and I can find a way to make the parking box integrated to the community folder mod and make it invisible again.

Installation:
  • Download the previous version 1.25.7.0 of this mod.
  • Choose the taxi ribbon size that you want, open that folder, and extract the fs-base folder to your Official Folder location, making sure you replace the existing file.
  • Download the main file version 8.0 of this mod.
  • Extract the downloaded subtle-taxi-ribbon folder to your community folder.
Uninstallation:
  • Delete the subtle-taxi-ribbon folder from your community folder.
  • Open the Backup folder from the version 1.25.7.0 of this mod and extract the fs-base folder to your official folder location, making sure you replace the existing file.

Alternative Taxi Ribbon mod:

If you prefer to retain the parking box, I recommend you check out RXP Small Taxi Helpers 3D-VR mod by CptLucky that modifies the parking box to look like painted lines on the apron while also making the taxi ribbon smaller and more immersive.

Great mod! Would it be possible also to have an option to just show the dotted taxi-way and remove the big parking boxes? It seems MSFS has them tied together as one where the only way to remove those horrible floating parking boxes is to disable the taxi ribbon.

Thank you for this! If MSFS gates matched the real world I'd find them myself but this helps tremendously. I simply installed V8 as is and have mapped taxi ribbon toggle to my joystick and turn it off when your addon has led me there 😊

Just noticed how far these Updates have came along but I still use v1.25.7.0 as my preferred as it keeps the Blue Box and the size and colour are ok as TINY+. I think it better you include all methods as Options as this is actual a very different style. So not an update but another style whilst again your other DEV is working on the static pulsating orbs.

I'm actually a huge fan of the animation. Going from the large blue to the smaller green has made them more discrete, but a lot easier to follow than the arrows on my regular size desktop monitor. A huge step in the right direction, and so much better than those God awful huge arrows that come stock with the sim.

Thanks to both of you for making this happen.

Hey, ich kann die Punkte nur bis maximal zwei Meter sehen und von dort verschwinden sie. Gibt es eine Lösung?

Why the animation and a circle? Can I turn the animation off? I prefer the small arrows, without animation, please.

Hi I have updated the mod and it works fine and the automated green orbs are much easier to see. Is the no way to make them smaller? I have the old mod still installed and selected 10% but the green obs remain the same size?

To Neo4316

There is a simpler way to pack the mod. I mean pack it as a normal mod in Community folder.

What you need to do is this:

  1. Create a folder with the name of your mod or mod variant... for example I have done one called: "Subtle Taxi Ribbon simple medium"
  2. Inside you need to have one folder and 2 files: "scenery" (folder) - layout.json and manifest.json
  3. In the "scenery" folder make a folder called: "Global". Inside this one make a folder called "Asobo_UI" (you know... the path to the file)
  4. Inside "Asobo_UI" folder put your modified file: Asobo_UI.BGL
  5. Go back to first folder and have a usual manifest file but edit it to look something similar/inspired by this:

{

 "dependencies": [],

 "content_type": "CORE",

 "title": "",

 "manufacturer": "",

 "creator": "Asobo Studio - Subtle Taxi Ribbon",

 "package_version": "0.3.00",

 "minimum_game_version": "1.9.3",

 "release_notes": {

  "neutral": {

   "LastUpdate": "",

   "OlderHistory": ""

  }

 },

 "total_package_size": "00000000000000013398"

}

6. Likewise you need to edit the layout.json and this one is tricky. If you do it with auto_json.exe it will list normally but not offer you to save. You can simply copy the offered text and then use it to manually create the json file in notepad++ etc.

for the blue - green variant in my case it looks like this:

{

 "content": [

{

 "path": "scenery/Global/Asobo_UI/Asobo_UI.BGL",

 "size": 416492,

 "date": 1629473448705

}

 ]

}

I think the size is important or something .

After that the mod is complete. Install it in community folder like usual with Addon Linker etc.
